They were the elections that weren’t meant to happen, but last week the Conservative and Labour parties suffered huge losses after the Brexit Party stormed to victory in the EU Elections.

2. Kit Harington Enters Rehab

Game of Thrones actor Kit Harington has voluntarily entered a ‘wellness centre’ after suffering from stress after the ending of the popular series. The show which ended last month became the most watched in HBO history, though it seems for Harington the pressure became too much.

A spokesperson for the actor said: “Kit has decided to utilize this break in his schedule as an opportunity to spend some time at a wellness retreat to work on some personal issues.”

1. Trump Calls Meghan "Nasty"

Today Donald Trump arrives in the UK for his controversial state visit. The President will officially be welcomed by the Queen and other members of the Royal Family, though one member who will noticeably be missing is The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle.

Meghan who previously has criticised the President was called “nasty” after the interview was relayed to Trump in an interview with The Sun newspaper. Asking for his thoughts on Markle’s comments Trump said: “I didn't know that she was nasty”. Looks like things could get pretty awkward when he meets Prince Harry!
